So this weekend I am in Dallas. Last night I slept about 2.5 hours. First of all it's freezing in here. Secondly, both of my friends snore. Thirdly, I know I should be writing but I ran away but it's weighing on my mind. sigh. Where's my laptop???
Here's a pic of the rott/lab who squeezes in-between the bed and the wall - and runs in her sleep... yep... sounds like Freddy Krueger at 2 a.m.
I pick my dad up at the airport in 3 hours! That gives me just enough time to clean up my week's mess! Of course I'm smack dab in the middle of a Will & Grace marathon. My parents have cable (I don't) so it's been a real treat. I need a Will in my life. Or Grace's hair. Anyway, let's take away 1/2 hour for dinner and 20 minutes to drive up there... hmmm... perhaps I should get movin'...
So yesterday is saw a snake stuck in an office chair downstairs. Yes, a snake. Yes, inside. I grabbed some scissors and carefully (while squealing every single time it moved) cut it loose from the threads of the chair's underbelly. I didn't think about what to do AFTER I freed it. Needless to say, somewhere in this house there is a snake curled up, planning some kind of revenge, I'm sure. I needed NyQuil to sleep last night. Only two more nights...
I adore my parents' dogs. They are sweet and kind and very lovable, but I only like them 18 hours a day. Last night was my first night house/pet sitting over there and the rott/lab mix snored the entire night so sleep was fleeting. The tiny weenie dog has a severe under bite and I was amazed at the sounds coming from her as well. Not to mention the 100 lb rott/lab tries to squeeze into a tiny area between the bed and the wall and tries to run in her sleep. It sounds like Freddy Krueger is coming to get me at 2 a.m. as her nails scrape the wall.
Is it just me, or has this week been dragging? Normally I don't complain, but I swear I've had at least two Mondays already, a couple of Tuesdays, Wednesday never ended... I'm done. I need a break! I need the weekend. Next week I'm house and pet sitting so I will have a lot of downtime to write and relax. Or so I think. We ALL know how that goes.
So this weekend I'm doing a Meet Up event at a local coffee shop. I am forcing myself to meet new people. I'm also working at my first soup kitchen downtown. A bunch of us gathered up school supplies and snackies for the kids who go to the kitchen. I usually stay behind the scenes, but this week... NO MORE! This week I'm grabbing a hair net and making it happen. I shall meet even more people.
Maybe because this weekend is exciting, I'm anxious for it to start! Nah, I swear, the week is definitely moving in slow motion.
All of my books are available at the Bold Strokes Books' website and other retail stores including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.
